It probably was caused by a great nostalgy to make a PC fonts based on old typewriter...
Here you can find some freewarefonts looking like typewriter. If you wish your PC output to look like an old Royal or Underwood - just download and install it!
Click on font sample to start downloading ZIP file with font.
The biggest Internet collection of free typewriter-style fonts (also some for Macs) I've ever seen (over 70) is located at: www.free-typewriter-fonts.com
Nice but expensive ($19 each) fonts you can also find at Vintage Type page.

Asked by Mike (regards!) I add that short explanation how to install the fonts:

  • True Type (ttf) are designed for Windows 95 and higher. I do not know anything about using True Type fonts in other systems. Please refer to font oriented sites/lists for details about other systems like Mac, Beos, Linux, Unix, OS2 etc.
  • first download file - by clicking on picture with font sample and selecting option "save file to disk" in pop-up window
  • using any unziping program decompress file to any temporary directory - e.g. C:\TMP.
    For unziping you can use WinZip, Unzip, WinRar, Windows Commander or lot of other (de)compressing programs that support ZIP format
  • If it was requested by font author you will get *.ttf file and other file like readme.txt (or similar name). The secondary file consist of some information about font prepaired by author. If you are going to give that font to other person please ALWAYS give it together with that file!
  • It's time to install font. Go to the Fonts section of Control Panel (Start > Settings > Control Panel > Fonts) and choose File > Install New Font. In the window that comes up, find the folder where you extracted the font (in our example - C:\TMP). Select it and click OK. The font is now installed, and can be used within any of Windows applications.
  • Easy, isn't it?
